3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From draught at The Bishops Arms, Järntorget. Black in colour, pale brown head. Malty, butterscotchy aroma with frozen strawberries and cooked corn. Butterscotchy, fruity, malty flavour, slight toasty and peppery with bitter finish. The finish is bitter, earthy hops. Kind of green to the character, due to the hops I presume.

Black coloured brew. Hoppy, fruity aroma. The flavor is very hopped, some coffee, smoke and pleasant roasted maltiness. Balanced stout with a lot of hops. A bit a combination of an IPA and a smoky stout. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings.
The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits.
The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops.
It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy.
All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink.

Bottle@Home. Very powerful nose that has it all. Looks great. Very flavourful and full malty start yet quickly gets thinner and leaves mainly coffee and roasted bitterness. Well brewed, not very easy going due to the coffee and bitter finish.
